I ordered two heater cables from The Roadster Factory as they had
the correct knob end. They are not covered with black plastic as I
believe the original ones were. So I covered them with black heat
shrink tubing. They have the 5(?) sided end with the locking pin for
the knob. Used one for the choke and one for the heater. They also
have the correct shape knobs. But the little picture within is not
correct. I was going to remove the plastic cover and make the
correct inserts on my printer, but got lazy and used them as they
were. I replaced all my knobs with ones for TR-4. Parts I used are;

Heater cable 622362 $9.95 w/o knob
Choke knob 704873 $4.95
Wiper knob 704875 $4.95
Heater valve 704884 $4.95
headlights 704885 $4.95

They are all for a TR4. If you need the interior courtesy lamps
they have those also BHA5138 $22.95. These are the smae thing
others sell for $45 each.

No connection, just a very satisfied customer.

Errata.

I was looking at my marked up catalog. I did not order Heater
cables, but two Choke cables. Part # 401900-1 $39.95. Have no idea
if the heater cables are long enough, but the chokes were.
